7:08 am
got a new president in place and a president who tried to deliver the message last night, which is that the republicans are all on the same page. yesterday was the 7th anniversary of the signing of obamacare, today should be the beginning of its unwinding. we're all looking for the same thing. we want to take obamacare away and give people the control and options that they want, the quality that they deserve, and the affordability that they need, but we need to do it today. >> but a poll suggests the plan is very unpopular at this point. 56% of americans disapprove of it. 17% approve cutting medicare funding. >> first of all nothing cuts medicare. >> medicaid. >> that's fine. i do that all the time. i'm sure most folks don't know what's in the bill. we have made the bill over the course of the last weeks. my guess is most people don't know the phase 2 reguly
7:09 am
the point of the matter is this. they know they don't like obamacare. it takes the control of their own health care out of their hands, it takes affordability away from them, and they want something better. what's sitting in the house today is better than that, and this is the chance to pass it. >> mr. mulvaney, when you talk about something better, us the that include the slashing of essential services including maternity care, emergency services, and prescription drugs? >> i love the term slashing essential terms. i've talked about this. states not only have the ability to require those services, of them already do. i talked to some folks in the northeast and they say we don't mind that much about essential health benefits because our states already require insurance policies sold in our states to have that. what we're doing is taking away the federal controls of the system. if you live in a state that wants to manage maternity coverage for a 60-year-old wo
7:10 am
doesn't to that? >> then you can figure out a way to change the state you live in? >> so you should move? >> no. they should try to change their own state legislatures and state laws. why do we look to the federal government to fix our local problems? that's one of the problems of obamacare. that i took one size fits all and crammed it down. nobody can actually afford to go to the doctor and that's what we're trying to fix and that's what the house bill does. >> there are many who say it's not only members of congress here but the president's agenda, that if he cannot get through a replacement health care, that the rest of his agenda will be at risk. >> a couple of different things on that. first of all, the rest of the agenda will stand on its own, the tax policy will stand on its own merits, the infrastructure policy will stand on its own merits. the efforts to put people back to work. this is one by the way, there will many
7:11 am
obamacare suppresses the desire to go to work. this is actually a jobs bill today on the house. in any event, all of those other policies will stand on their own merit, but folks will have to be accountable. why they didn't vote to get rid of obamacare when they had the chance, that chance is today. >> mick mulvaney, thanks for joining us. they privately apologized for his decision to brief president trump on intelligence incidents. he ingered both democrats and republicans for briefing president trump before sharing it with his own committee. he said conversations between his transition team and foreign in officials were intercepted by the intelligence team. he explained why he went to the president. >> it's clear i would be concerned fi was the president and that's why i wanted hmm to know and i felt iad

it is friday, march 24th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including the drama playing out today on capitol hill over the republican plan to replace obamacare. we'll look at whether the gop can whip up enough votes. we'll talk to john dickerson and major garrett. but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >>s thi is an extraordinary high stakes gamble. the question for him now is do they obey him or call his bluff. >> he told the speaker, the president doesn't care. he wants a vote and he wants it now. >> why do you think an ults may item will work now? >> because i think you've got a
8:01 am
to deliver thesa mesasge lt night, which is that the republicans are all on the same page. we're all looking for same thing. we want to take obamacare away. >> reporter: this is the bus that rolled on its side. it is clear when you look inside how violent that crash actyuall was. >> police have been talking about the size of this investigation. it was huge. there were a thousand witnesses. >> this came in back in january. the fbi says itinvesgating hate crimes is a top priority. mateen wants israel to track down the suspect. >> "time" magazine published an interview with president trump when they asked if he thought the false statements he made damaged his reputation, trump replieds, i can't be doing so badly because i'm president and you're not. i told my 2-year-old daughter that he said that and she was like, dude, grow up. i'm charlie rose with anthony mason andx
8:02 am
norah and fwagayle are off. president trump says he's ready to move on and if they fail, the gop will be stuck with obamacare. the house rules committee is meeting right now. these are live pictures. a full house vote is expected later today. the house had planned to vote yesterday on the president's first major piece of legislation, but republicans failed to line up enough support. >> last night president trump dispatched white house advisers as well as budget director mick mulvaney to the capitol. this morning mulvaney told us why the president is done negotiating. >> the message was you've about had seven years the work on this, we've given it a lot of discussion. charlie, i think more members of congress have been through the white house in the last week than were here for the whole eight years of the obama administration. democrats included were here over the course of the last couple of day t
8:03 am
various things. the point is this. they've had time to work on it, i'm not going to sit around and wait for them to negotiate over the next several weeks or months. this is the day. >> major garrett is at the white house. major, what's going on behind the scenes right now? >> it's no wonder that they're looking at who cut a deal. is that's why both were sent to capitol hill, with a message, backed up by mick mulvaney and the budget director. the time to vote is now. it's a huge high stakes gamble, but this administration has decided all of them were essentially circling around the issue and not getting to a moment of decision. that's what the president wants and as a senior official told me today, there's a very fine line between being decisive and being impatient. we believe we're being decisive. >> major, how many of these last-minute changes were starters for h
8:04 am
it's sort of central to this whole issue of whether or not the speaker of the house paul ryan can find the votes necessary to pass this because moderates see the bill constantly moving in the direction of the hard core conservative tea-party-inspired caucus. they don't like that and they're hardening their opposition to this bill because of changes made to take away some of the federal mandates for essential health benefits and provide extra money for them to do that. they see them moving away and keep about the affordable care act. that's essential for the house. until they resolve that, they cannot pass. >> thank you. john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> when everything else has failed, will this ultimatum work? >> we'll find out. it's kind of the last tool in the tool kit which is you've got to be in the negotiation to walk away.
8:05 am
negotiations. in talking to a lot of people over the course of covering him who have done it and watched him, this is a part of what you do. you force it. as major said, it's very high stakes. >> if they fail and if the ultimatum doesn't work, doesn't everybody lose here on the republican side? >> well, it's not going to be pretty. and the thing to watch if it doesn't happen if there is failure is to watch the immediate finger pointing because president trump and house speaker paul ryan have to stay in synch to get all the other things they want to get done and there's a little tiny distance in "the new york times" story between the president and paul ryan. the president reportedly saying he wishes he started with tax reform, maybe wasn't so sure this was the right thing to do at the start. if there's distance, it creates more opportunities within the republican ranks, so if it doesn't pass, you're right. there will be a lot of finger pointing, and the question is how they regain their cohesion because they won't be able to go forward without it. >> to that end, jo
8:06 am
york times" report says that president trump regrets pursuing health care repeal first. what does that tell you about his appetite going forward because if this passes, it is not a done deal in the senate and has to be reconciled again in the house. >> that's right. there's a long process going -- to come, and the fixes that were made to get votes in the house will lose votes among some senators who are under different kinds of pressures. i mean what donald trump is learning as a president is that what all presidents learn, which is it's easier to win an election where you say the choices between a and b, than it is to negotiation a complicated piece of legislation where the choices are not between a and b and where they have sticky concerns that are not so easy to fix. and so if there is a victory in the house, there is still much debate and much argument to go as it goes over to the senate. >> john, how much power does the house freedom have and are they really ready to buck
8:07 am
president in their first major policy vote? >> they look like they're ready, although things are quite fluid. they have a lot of power and a lot of meetings and they've gotten a lot of attention, and the bill has been moved in their direction, even though everybody knows it's got this next stage to face in the senate and that the more conservative it's made in the house, the more problems that potentially creates in the senate. so any group that can stick together that is more than 21 has a lot of power because 21 is the number of votes -- republican votes that are needed to get this passed in the house. so the freedom conference, you know, has got that power because they're sticking together. >> so what are the lessons to learn from all this, john? >> well, the lessons are the more complicated -- these negotiations are more complicated than perhaps the president thought and, you know, it's -- i'm not sure what the lesson is really. giev to see how the final vote goes. if he pulls this out at the end by saying
8:08 am
then the lesson is be a hard negotiator at the end. so i'm not sure, charlie. >> it may be -- somebody once said that watching legislation is like watching sausage being made. >> yes. although, that should be a lesson they already knew at the beginning. this is a piece of -- you know, it is ugly and part of what the argument the president and others are making to republicans is this is what governing looks like and stop wanting the perfect and get behind what's possible. of course, there are a lot of republicans who came to washington saying that's why we came, is to not go for just the possible but to go for what we promised voters, and that's one of the clashes you've about got her. >> john dickerson in washington. thanks, john. >> thanks, charlie. sunday on face the nation john will species with republican congressman tray doughty and democrat adam schiff plus former secretary of state george schultz. that's sunday here on
